Catch the master at work when Dieselboy hits Beta
Whether he's producing the fastest, tightest, most insistent drum-and-bass tracks you've ever heard or dropping a set that's pure whomp-based dubstep, it's clear that Damian Higgins selected an appropriate moniker when he started making music as Dieselboy. His sound is immediately identifiable — slick, dark and powerful, with an underlying rumble and mechanical precision that evoke an engine boasting more horsepower than a NASA shuttle. His high-school musical meanderings included playing drums in the marching band and deejaying for dances at his alma mater in Oil City, Pennsylvania. Once he got beat-matching and mixing down, production was the next obvious step, and by the mid-'90s, Dieselboy was one of the most respected bass-oriented mixmasters and producers in the game. Catch the master at work at Beta this Friday, April 26.
